Snowspeeder Build

This is my latest Sci-Fi build of the 1/32 scale AMT STAR WARS Snow Speeder.
OverView
The kit was detailed well but required a lot of strip plastic to fill in the gaps at the back and underneath. Its a fairly old kit and the gaps show its age. With a far bit of work and about 20 hours later it was presentable though I hated it until the very end when it suddenly seemed to all come together.

About Ian Hill (Brokeneagle)
FROM: VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA

Whatever project I find myself doing I always try to pick an interesting topic that has a lot of texture,weathering opportunities and grabs the viewer. I use modelling to add a 3rd dimension to my painting of pictures.

Great job Ian. As a Star Wars fan from way back it's cool to see one so well done. It's looks as if it's right off the ILM shelves. Cheers, Jim

Nice job. Very cool!!!!!!!!!! I've been a Starwars "Geek" from the very first movie. I'd like to see more of your work and a little more explanation as to types of paint and weathering techniques, etc.. Thanks! Jeff
